Ruby Filter: Getting more info for logstash.filters.ruby errors


(Victor) #1

The Logstash 5.6.7 logging pipeline in use has about 50 conditionals inside the filter, most of them resulting in data manipulations through Ruby codes in a form

if <something> {
   ruby {
      code => ”
         <ruby_code_here>
      "
   }
}

That works just fine but every now and then Logstash fails and it logs a cryptic message

10:00:19.809 [[main]>worker1] ERROR logstash.filters.ruby - Ruby exception occurred: can't convert String into Integer

The trouble is that none of the Ruby fragments implicitly performs a .to_i operation and the source message is not logged. log4j2.properties file contains

log4j.appender.console.type=Console
log4j.appender.console.layout=net.logstash.log4j.JSONEventLayoutV1
log4j.rootLogger=INFO, console

Increasing rootLogger INFO -> DEBUG just jams whole logging pipeline.

Is it possible to get more information where Logstash was applying the Ruby filter and what was the source message? Thanks a lot!
